New Touring and Dissemination of Work Scheme Closing Dates announced

The closing date for tours starting from July to December 2020 and for Advance Planning 2021 will be January 9th, 2020.



Application forms will be available through online services from mid-December 2019.


Unsuccessful applicants to Strategic/Arts Centre/Partnership Funding may apply to the Touring Scheme Round 2 2019.


The Advance Planning scheme is open to all individuals and organisations who wish to tour productions in 2010 (apart from organisations which are in receipt of multi-annual strategic funding agreements).


Since its introduction in 2010 the Touring schemes have been based on the principle of collaboration between those who produce and those who present work to audiences.


For details on the scheme, please contact Val Ballance or Regina O'Shea. If you have questions specifically related to art forms, then email the relevant team. All contact details are on the Arts Council's website Contacts page.
